A dense and silky Crozes-Hermitage that stands out for its generosity and excellent ageing potential, from one of the Rhône Valley's rising stars. More info

This Crozes-Hermitage stands out from the property's other wines for its generous style and excellent ageing potential. Its Syrah grapes have been cultivated in line with organic, almost biodynamic, principles and are fully de-stemmed before fermentation with indigenous yeasts. Élevage is in barrels used for between one and five vintages. After a few years in the cellar the wine has an attractive garnet colour and once it has been aerated a little its nicely mature nose offers up abundant notes of spice, jammy fruits, cocoa, black olives, and the perfect amount of wood. Pair this dense and silky wine with red meats - either roast or in sauce.

Crozes-Hermitage Les Machonnières Domaine des Entrefaux serve at a temperature of 16°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Consommé de truffes, Ravioles aux cèpes, Tournedos de canard à la plancha.

Peak: Drink until 2030

    Information about domain Domaine des Entrefaux

    Located in Chanos-Curson, Domaine des Entrefaux spans 28 hectares in the Crozes-Hermitages appellation. This family domaine is managed by Charles et François Tardy, two winemakers committed to expressing the diversity of their terroir as faithfully as possible. They started the transition to organic viticulture some years ago and received certification in 2011. They also practice a few biodynamic methods to help sustain microbial life in the vineyard and prevent disease. They till the soils, cover crop the vines and limit yields; The vineyard is sits on a stony terrace called ‘Les Chassis” and is planted mostly to Syrah with 4 hectares of Marsanne and Roussane. They have also just acquired two hectares of Viognier and Chardonnay that they vinify as a Vin de Pays. Work in the winery tries to let nature lead where possible. No yeast is added and only a minimal amount of sulphur. Elevage takes place in oak and vats. This is a domaine that produces excellent wines with fresh fruit aromas at reasonable prices.
